Jenny Hayden never did get over the death of her husband. So when an alien life form decides to model "himself" on the husband, Jenny is understandably confused if not terrified. The alien, or Starman, as he is called, has a deadline to meet, and kidnaps Jenny in order to meet it.Written by
The rendezvous crater location where the Starman was to meet and return to the mother ship is a place situated just outside of Winslow, Arizona. According to the National Geographic, the site is one mile wide, 570 feet deep, and about 49,000 years old. See more »
When Jenny and Starman leave the truck and jump on the train they get into a "Cattle Car" with slatted sides. When they get off the train in Las Vegas it is a box car with solid steel sides. See more »
Good. I'm glad you're here.
What the hell is this about?
You're a man of some scientific attainment. You mean to tell me you don't recogonize an emergency autopsy room when you see one?
With leather tie straps?
You behave yourself, Mark.

This beautiful and funny science fiction film comes very close to being my all-time favorite movie. This film is about love. An alien lands on Earth to investigate the life-forms, and encounters Karen Allen. A cross-country chase ensues as our alien has to meet up with his starship in Arizona.
But for me, the main point of this film is not the chase, the cloning by the alien, the humor throughout the film, or the eventual outcome which led into the subsequent TV series. The focal point comes in the diner where our alien asks Karen Allen to "Define Love." If everyone would take this definition to heart, this world would be a much better place!
This is what movie making should strive to achieve. This film has virtually everything... romance, humor, action, suspense, a gorgeous soundtrack, beautiful cinematography, an intelligent screenplay with a most important message, and talented actors and actresses. I gave it a SOLID 10!
